Nice work Stephanie.

we have on hand.
Some pretty interesting and funky textures there.

We are a group of potters in and around Sarnia and Lambton County, Ontario, Canada. There are approximately 30 of us from all walks of life and of all ages. We share one common passion - pottery.
We call ourselves the SLPG for short. The SLPG was started 3 years ago, by a couple of enthusiastic potters, Barbara Blackburn and Stephanie Smalls. Many of us attended classes at the local community college (Lambton College), but felt the need for more opportunity to network with other potters. After an inaugural meeting, and an enthusiastic response from the local pottery community, we were off and running.
We meet the third Monday of every month (except July and August) - usually at Lambton College to discuss local pottery issues, and learn new techniques.
In upcoming posts, we will share pictures of our work - and biographies of our members. We will also keep you up to date with the happenings in our pottery community
